The 700 m long section of Neubaugasse between Mariahilfer Strasse and Burggasse was converted into a shared zone.
In this new shared zone the bus line 13A as well as the bicycle traffic is possible in both directions. Thus, the stops were also newly designed.
Green areas – partly also with trees – as well as seating , pavement cafés, trellises, bike parking areas and loading zones were established on both sides of the driving surface. Parking spaces are no longer provided.
The objective of the newly designed shared zone Neubaugasse is to increase the quality of stay and therefore to considerably promote Neubaugasse as a shopping street. Above all the integrated green elements shall bring about an essential improvement of the urban climate. This new green “backbone” will create a haven of tranquility during the coming extension of the underground railway in the district. After the construction works this quality shall also be implemented in the neighbouring road sections.
